** The franchise ''itself''. At the time of its creation, as mentioned above, the first game was intended to be Squaresoft's last hurrah; a game meant to be the 'last word in turn based RPG's'. Fortunately, the game was so popular that it saved Square, and they went on to make more and more games, creating a franchise that's still beloved by many. But the name has never changed: it's still called '''Final''' Fantasy, as an homage to the game that saved them.

* CreatorKiller: Hard as it is to believe now, the first game was expected to be this for Squaresoft, because it seemed all but certain they would go out of business due to bankruptcy, hence the name "Final Fantasy." Fortunately for them, this was subverted, as it ended up saving the company with its sales numbers. [[FranchiseZombie As a side effect, now the series is unlikely to end in our lifetimes]].

* According to [[WordOfGod Kazuhige Nojima]] (albeit in a way that he could deny it if needed) VideoGame/FinalFantasyX and VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII are connected - a side quest of FF X-2 has Shinra talking about the possibilities of harvesting the energies in the Far Plane energies, but he laments that technology would not be around for at least 300 years to do so. In the X-2 guide it is stated that Square had always planned on having the worlds interconnected somehow and that X-2 is a huge hint that after space travel is up and running the inhabitants of the world travel to the far distant world of Gaia, [=FF7=]'s world, and find the 'life stream' where 1000 years later the descendants of Shinra found the Shinra Electric company and set off events of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII.

* MeaningfulName: A lot of the names in the FF world draw upon mythology, religious beliefs, and fiction. A good example are all of the [[SummonMagic Espers]] who are named after mythical figures, places, or objects such as Levithan, Kujata, Shiva, Hades, and Ark to name a few.
